On Weds. it was players from the New York Yankees, and today it’s Philadelphia Phillies players Cole Hamels, Raul Ibanez, Jimmy Rollins, Shane Victorino and Jayson Werth unveiling apparel and cap designs (look for a separate article later on caps) as part of the MLBPA’s 2010 Players Choice Signature Series collection.
The players produced the products in a two-month design and manufacturing process with the Major League Baseball Players Association and its apparel licensees, VF/Majestic (Jerseys and T-shirts) and Twins/Banner 47 (Caps).
Players from the New York Mets (Jason Bay, Jeff Francouer, Johan Santana and Jose Reye) and and Minnesota Twins (J.J. Hardy, Justin Morneau, Joe Nathan, Nick Punto and Kevin Slowey) will unveil designs next week (NY Mets - Wednesday, June 9; Minnesota Twins - Thursday, June 10).
The Signature Series product-line made its debut in July of 2009, when Mets players designed items for sale in the MLBPA’s Players Choice Clubhouse retail store located at Citi Field (See the original designs by the Mets players). The overwhelming success of that program led the MLBPA to expand it in 2010.
